There's Some Thing Between Us. is a series of objects that reflect upon different relationships through their interaction and fabrication. Objects are inspired by personal experiences, but generalized in a broader context to make work that is quick, accessible, and representative of a cultural context that allows outsiders to relate in a new way to the experiences at hand.
How do we use graphic design when words can’t communicate how we feel?
As a response to emotional phenomena within the transforming landscape of communication, we have created our own constructs in order to adapt to it. We create our own culture in order to relate to it, usually based on a previous methodology.
But within this translation, there is a grey area that sometimes cannot be defined. As digital culture becomes more prevalent, especially in graphic design, there is a lack of certain things that further obscure meaning from a message. Timing, body language, tone. This miscommunication and this uncertainty, the very fluid nature of relationships is what inspired the creation of these objects.
The project aims to amplify feelings already present in a way that makes it digestible and consumable to those outside the cultural phenomena. Using digital fabrication and downloadable content would allow these experiences to be democratized and shared with as many people as possible.
